Sorry if its the wrong section,but i cant find a proper section to ask this question. Since everyone here are gamers, im sure you know which is best based on your experience.

I am helping a friend to get a budget gaming rig. Not for those graphic intensive games, but simple online games like BlackShot, WoW, GunZ etc.

Please help me chose between those two rigs. And please dont ask me to upgrade or change anything, add extra 50 bucks and i can get bla bla bla. I just want a straight forward answer. Thanks.

Option 1
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ DualCore Processor (3.1 Ghz)
Gigabyte M61PME-S2P AM2 Motherboard rev 1.0 still have 2.5 years warranty until 05-Nov-2012 with receipt
Brand New XFX Radeon HD 4350 1GB Graphic Card with VGA, DVI & HDMI 2-year Kaira warranty (w/receipt)
Brand New EDVAN micro-ATX Tower casing - Black with Royal Blue trimming
Brand New 450W Power Supply
2GB DDR2-667 Lifetime Warranty Kingston Memory
80GB SATA 7200RPM Harddisk
Brand New LG DVD writer ( 1 year warranty)

Option 2
Compaq Pentium D Full system (compaq presario SR1960AP)
Intel® Pentium™ D 925 @ 3.0GHz
2 GB Ram (3gb but only detected 2gb. 1x2gb and 1x1gb)
Nvidia 9600gt
160gb HDD
Windows XP Media Center Edition

Thanks

If looking at raw processing power, #1 wins hands down. But graphics wise that 4350 is not good at all. It gets beat by the 9400gt. If you are talking about any kind of gaming at all, Ill have to go with #2. The Pentium D sucks but at least it has a 9600gt to back it up.
